Cardiovascular Surgery: Our team of heart surgeons performs hundreds of surgeries a year – making us the leading community hospital for heart surgery in the South Bay. Our surgeons are trained in the most advanced surgical techniques, including the newest off-pump ("beating heart") procedures, which means a faster recovery for our heart patients.

Gynecologic Surgery: At Good Samaritan, our surgeons use advanced laparoscopy in many gynecologic procedures, including fertility and cancer surgery. In laparoscopic surgery, we use very small instruments and make tiny incisions, which means less scarring, faster healing and less pain for the patient. In fact, one of our recent surgical procedures was televised live worldwide for an international laparoscopic conference. We are glad to be able to bring such cutting-edge procedures to the South Bay community so that our patients can get the expert care they need right here at home.

Neurosurgery: Good Samaritan’s neurosurgery department continues to be at the forefront of surgery for the brain and spine. With rapid advances in brain surgery, our neurosurgeons now use state-of-the art imaging equipment that can zero in on brain tumors with a higher precision than ever before. In addition, our back specialists use new specialized instrumentation to fuse the back – in fact, one of our surgeons helped design implants for this approach. When it comes to neurosurgery, patients can rest assured that they are in good hands at Good Samaritan.

Orthopedic Surgery: With a specialized Silicon Valley Joint Replacement Center, Good Samaritan offers a comprehensive program for hip and knee replacements.

Pediatric Surgery: Because of children’s unique needs when it comes to surgery, we’ve created a special unit just for them. Our pediatric rooms are designed specifically for children, with warm, comfortable furnishings and special pediatric instruments. Our highly qualified staff is also certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support, so you can be certain your child is in the best hands possible.

Urology: Good Samaritan is one of few hospitals in Northern California to perform laparoscopic prostatectomies, which are less invasive and result in faster recoveries for patients with prostate cancer.
